Overview

"This first English translation of an important work of John Calvin is a welcome supplement to his teachings in his Institutes." -E. Earle Ellis, Southwestern Journal of Theology
This volume provides Calvin's fullest treatment of the relationship between the grace of God and the free will of humans. It offers insight into Calvin's interpretations of the church fathers, especially Augustine, on the topics of grace and free will and contains Calvin's answer to Pighius's objection that preaching is unnecessary if salvation is by grace alone. This important work, edited by renowned scholar A. N. S. Lane, contains material not found elsewhere in Calvin's writings and will be required reading for students of Calvin and the Protestant Reformation.

the bondage and liberation of the will is one of john calvin's most important yet forgotten works...this debate is a little more intellectual and nuanced then luther's battle with erasmus...this is a must read because it showed conclusively that st. augustine taught that free will was enslaved to libertas--liberty and was one more nail in the reformation slogan of sola fide
